I Wish I Was Still There...

I woke up.
We were sleeping side by side in a hospital.
And I could see you next to me.
I grabbed your hand and your eyes opened, smiling at me.
So we got up and went for a walk.
We walked through the corridors, holding hands and no one stopped us.
Together we strolled down the street.
And for some reason it didn’t occur to us that no one noticed us.
They didn’t even look.
They seemed to look through us.
Maybe they couldn’t see.
We walked and walked together.
Past buildings that touch the sky.
Over bridges.
Through tunnels.
In between cars.
We walked until we came to a park and found a tree.
The trunk had been carved on so many times; it was scarred with initials and hearts.
So we put our hands on the trunk and climbed.
We climbed to the very top and sat, talking.
We talked and talked.
Too weary to walk back to the hospital so we sat.
I can’t remember everything we spoke about.
But we did talk so much.
Finally you climbed down out of the branches.
And you left me there by myself.
I really wish you hadn’t left me.
We were so high up and I was scared.
I don’t think I ever came down from the tree though.
And I’ve been searching ever since.

I Wish I Was Still There...
